Pretty average work for Friday and his partner in auto theft. Two notes: For some reason, this contains the "End Prologue/Act One/Act Two" intertitles and the LAPD is now operating out of the new police building. For most of the series they were in the old City Hall, which had some interesting architecture but was probably very crowded.
